    I've single all of my life. Sometimes I don't like it, sometimes I do. The good thing is, I don't get jealous when I see couples anymore. Maybe I know too much about human nature to care. Hmm...

    Conflicted

    I feel like my last relationship messed me up emotionally for a while. On one hand, I am wary of losing control of my emotions again. Then again, I really would like to experience a committed long-term relationship. Maybe it is possible to be with someone and not break up?

    Screw Dating

    What happened to the days I was single and could care less? What happened to the days when I was single, didn't care, and men flocked to me ANYWAY?! I don't know. All I know now is that now that I'm single, I feel only half as good without a boyfriend. Since my break up, which...

    A Startling Contrast

    I  am single but have a special someone in mind, I have found an annoying contrast though. When I am just a rogue flirt, I am rarely taken seriously and people consider me like leftovers - something to be sampled at a later date. Suddenly when I voice that I have a special...

    The Jury Is Deadlocked On This One ...

    Being 36 and single - this is a STRANGE place to be! My entire life, all the women in my family graduated, found a man, got married, had kids, etc. Everyone is still married - and here I am - divorced. It's a good thing - but after devoting your life to a husband...

    I was completely unprepared to be single again. I was with the girl I really expected to spend the rest of my life with. So yeah it killed me when it ended out of the blue. However, it has been more fun than I've had in years to see all my friends that I never saw and doing...

    Still Standing

    When we broke up, I was getting out of the car. We had just shared a small dinner date of silence and lobster, and I expected to hear the usual "I love you," and a goodnight kiss. This time, I got the kiss. Then, I got the, "I'm leaving you for your stepsister." And then he was...
